to be the law until 2004. the restriction on the sale of magazines that hold more than ten bullets at a time. that bill will now go to the full senate. and so far, no republicans have said they will support it. in debating it today, though, something kind of amazing happened in the senate and we have the tape of it. i want to show you the tape and what's going to happen here at the beginning is that you will see the republican senator from texas ted cruz, freshman senator giving a little lecture about what he thinks is important in this discussion. this lecture specifically to senator dianne feinstein, but bear with me. sit through the lecture for a second because what you're watching for here, what you want to see is the reaction to the lecture. watch. >> if i might pose a question to the senior senator from california. it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment in the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. the term the right of the people when the framers
muffins and mimosas so you can question the chooch about the ultrasound law while dining on a corn muffin. and the united versions versus the united states. the end run around the american way of life. i think that one is about bike lanes. but this was the item on the agenda that caught my eye as soon as the cpac schedule was released last month. too many american wars? should we fight anywhere? and can we afford it? now, that is legitimately fascinating. it was ten years ago this week that republicans and conservatives led the charge, and led a lot of democrats to go along with them to invading iraq. because they argued, you know, wmd, smoking gun mushroom cloud, whatever, let's just go to war. but now, ten years later at cpac, conservatives asking each other, asking themselves whether we as a country might be going to war too much. them asking themselves that question is really interesting for our national politics around war and peace. as they become increasingly dislocated from standard republican and partisan axes on those subjects. are we fighting too many american wars? what
senate effort to pass new gun control laws. the question now, how far will the president go in this fight? welcome to "america live" on a friday, eastern. i'm megyn kelly. in a vote down party line, the senate judiciary committee approved a ban on assault weapons and urged the senate and house to pass the measure and vice-president joe biden now on twitter saying, quote, encouraged by senate judiciary committee action. background checks, school safety, bans on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, but back on capitol hill, the main sponsor says she needs more from the white house in order to get this thing over the finish line. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on foxnews.com live. and so, there was all this kerfuffle yesterday about the exchange between dianne feinstein and senator ted cruz of texas. he challenged her with whether you could similarly limit the first amendment rights and the fourth amendment that protects from search and seizure and so on in the way he thinks she's trying to do to second amendment rights. this was all ov
is in the business of making law. the supreme court interprets the law. they strike down the law, they strike down the law. the tests in heller with respect to unusual weapons, to other things, i think do not cover -- in other words, they cover an exemption for assault weapons. >> is that true, cynthia? the supreme court ruled in favor of assault weapons ban, as pointed out a few moments ago. >> exactly. >> i guess you can have the right to carry in d.c. which i don't agree with, but you can do it. >> there are absolutely no rights in the bill of rights that are absolute, as sam said earlier, and the assault weapons ban was in effect for a decade. no one said, at least the supreme court didn't say it was unconstitutional. heller has come along since then, but heller does not say all assault weapons must be legal. it says that authorities may, in fact, pass laws restricting gun ownership. >> in fact, that bastion of liberal thinking, justice scalia said that you can't have regulations on guns. i mean, i don't understand what the argument is about. conservative members of the court saying it's okay
the sequester is a law written and passed by congress that is specific about what can and can't be done. when it comes to im -- implementation. >> the white house is taking fresh criticism how sequestration impacting education funding assistance for active duty military members. marine corps today calling the cuts necessary to support semiprograms on the health, readiness of the corps. the president spent another day making rounds on capitol hill. meeting first with the senate republicans who had a split opinion on how it went. >> we'll see where we go from here. but it was a great meeting. >> not so according to john cornyn who said after today's meeting it is clear to me that balancing our budget and cutting bloated washington spending are not president obama's top priorities. then it was across the hill and across party lines to meet with house democrats. >> economy is trying to give us signs it wants to launch. the president wants to be there to make sure that the 535 elected members in congress. and the individual american people elected to be president of the united states are ready to
fit, as it should be be managed, we don't have that flexibility because of the way the law is written. so there is talk providing that in military areas, but in areas like this it's hard to see unless there's a ground swell for a short-term solution to he restore the money. >> greta: and i thought the republicans offered the flexibility to the white house and white house declined it. >> they offered it on the defense side and it may happen. they said they want it as part of a broader package over the sequester, but we're getting to the point look, the sequester is the law, it's happened, the cuts are implemented. i think there's going to be more pressure to say, wait a second, back this up and find it in the civilian area and find something that shouldn't be cut and we cut it. >> greta: or find $137,000 whatever the number is, in waste in the department of education and they won't. thank you. >> thank you. >> greta: on capitol hill, a debate the homeland security department released 2000 illegal detainees, including felons. and taking on ice director john morton. >> it appears to me t
of laws for big corporations, wealthy people the politically connected, and another set of laws for everybody else. that was a really radical testimony that mary jo white engaged in. she admitted, and remember she's a former prosecutor. she admitted that she's taking in account the outside economic impact of prosecutorial decisions. the precept that justices are supposed to be blind to the questions of economics, the questions of impact on other things outside of the justice system. instead she's saying essentially that prosecutors should be thinking--shareholders whether to prosecute lawbreakers. shareholders should determine in part whether a law-braking company should be prosecuting. that's a radical notion. >> michael: that's crazy. people within the corporation deciding whether the corporation should be prosecuted. where in the world does that sit in legal terms? she has a diverse resumÉ. she has worked as a federal prosecutor. she has worked on the defense of morgan chase, bank of america. and don't we want people who knows the inners of how banks work but laws when you t
about what the second amendment is and what it is is not. so did ted cruz not go to law school? has he ever been to law school? >> i believe he went to harvard law school. do they teach law there? >> did they teach ted cruz to read what the supreme court said, especially in the landmark, the landmark decision regarding second amendment rights over 200 years was written in 2008. i'm just wondering why would he use his seat on the judiciary committee if he went to harvard to -- to -- to put forward a willfully ignorant statement about this bill violating the second amendment, because it does not. and ted cruz knows it does not. so who is he playing for? is he playing for -- for -- for people who can't read, for illiterates? i don't understand. you know, a lot of people out there that support ted cruz's position that will say, this is not a violation of the second amendment, however, i have real concerns because you take this first step, the next thing you know they are trying to overturn heller and try to get my shotguns and try to get my hundreding rifles. i don't mean to go on and on h
the politic. >> a 1995 federal law regulating lobbying carved out an exception for religious organizations. allowing them it avoid total disclosure. without disclosures, it's difficult to know who is lobbying local congressional leaders and what they want. >> it's a different set of rules, but it doesn't take away from the fact that the u.s. catholic church, the u.s. conference of bishops specifically is one of the bigger lobbying forces on capitol hill and they are involved in a variety of issues. >> tax exempt religious groups are prohibited from campaigning. the research group estimates the u.s. conference of bishops spent $26 million lobbying in one year. a figure the bishops would neither confirm nor deny. >> he spent 14 years behind bars for a crime he did not commit. today we speak with an east bay man recently exonerated. why he is staying positive. >> surprising new findings on mars and why scientists may want to rethink calling it the red planet.

this that nothing he has proposed in all the measures would take a single firearm away from a single law-abiding american citizen. lou: square that up, if you will. the debate over the assault on the second amendment in the sena judiciary committee today was contentious, he did, and sometimes participants were condescending. the passage out of the committee, the bill now heads to the full senate for a vote. fox news chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel has our report. ♪ >> reporter: the second amendment and the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> reporter: before the senate judiciary committee approved a new assault weapons ban by a 10-8 party-line vote freshman texas replican ted crews challenged the bill's author, democrat dianne feinstein on the constitution. >> the question that i would pose to the senior senator from california is, would she be made consistent with the bill of rights for congress to engage in this same endeavor that we are contemplating doing with the second amendment in the context of the
that. this is what happens when you create law based on crisis rather than reason. the progress is crazy people. that's displace by the left stereotypes. they made it about rednecks instead of irrationals. that's where we ended up. they were convinced that -- white guy in south with guns. that is what they are going after. it's me tally ill. >> bob: if you read the bill on background checks it focuses on people with mental problems. that is a place to amend it. we know it will pass. who is against background checks? >> dana: i read today charles cook went line by linep through the schumer background check bill. even for me, i thought it was going a step too far for gun owners. >> andrea: this is interesting how the ideology stops when politics comes to play. scared to lose their job. >> dana: i don't think this is on easter break. the media is focused on trip in the middle east. >> eric: if either of the amendment pass come and shoot with me at the shooting range? >> bob: yes. >> greg: i'm for a ban but self-imposed prohibition that media enact that influence other rare tragedie
new laws with 51 votes getting the necessary number might have been possible. here's another number over 50 that senator might have considered when making his legislative plans. according to the latest "abc news" "washington post" poll, 57% of adults said they would support a ban on the sale of assault weapons. only 41% said they wouldn't. that's only if you believe in democracy. as for senator feinstein she had said to have been angry when she told reporters, how many assault weapons do you need circulating. to have these mass killings is such a blight on everything that america stands for. meanwhile new gun control legislation became latte in colorado where democratic governor john hickenlooper signed three bills that will restrict sales of new ammo clips to 15 rounds. require universal background checks, and charge gun owners for the background check costs. governor hickenlooper signed those bills shortly after the death, the victim of another gun violence, a man that the governor new john clemens who heads the department of corrections. he had a wife and two daughters. here's pa

doesn't believe that that should be the case. therefore, we have a law which, in essence, requires these banks to go back to the federal reserve once a year or to the federal banking authorities once a year to prove that they can stand a one in 100-year event and also to prove the ability that they have the -- they have the ability to return money to shareholders. the banks in the past three and a half years have been showing increases in earnings quarter after quarter on a year-over-year basis. the earnings of the banks this year in the first quarter of 2013 are likely to be the highest that we've ever seen in the american banking industry. and this increase in housing activity, you know, the increase in housing prices, who owns all those foreclosed homes and all that distressed real estate are the banks. and the value of that real estate is growing at a rapid rate indicating that the assets that the banks own are now actually understated in terms of their position on the balance sheet. and yet the government says we're going to tell you whether you can do this, that or the other

sale at every gun show. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> we do not because the fact is the law right now is a failure the way it's working. the fact is you have 76,000-some people that have been denied under the present law. only 44 were prosecuted. you're letting them go. they are walking the streets. >> shameless. he's also said previously that schools should be gun-free zones. now he says even in the school should be armed. the man does any u-turn that suits him. yet he's winning this war in washington. why is he winning? why does the nra continue to wield this power? i have a tweet here from ted new gent. ask michael moore this. will you ever admit your "bowling for columbine" lie is a propaganda smear against the good families of the nra and the honorable american legendary e freedom warrior charlton heston. >> ted and i are both from michigan. there is a reason he's called the motor city madman. he's been off his rocker for a long time. i feel bad because he had some good music back in the day. but, listen, the thing here with wayne la pierre who, by the way, i thought
if we put some rules, some law around this that ensures due process, the rule of law and transparency. we should lead the way. the president should not allow himself to be coming up on the backside of this. he should be helping to lead this effort. you know, the reality is that there are legitimate uses of drones and there are some illegitimate uses of them. when people are not combatants, they should not be subject to target assassination. we should arrest people if they violated the law. we should only use this sort of technology in the circumstances to protect american lives to do so. but i think that the technology has outrun the rules. we've got to get a handle on this right away. i agree with poe did he say toe. >> there's been disagreement even amongst the republican party. i'm sure you saw john mccain criticizing rand paul who filibusternd and said paul is foolish to be worried about drones being used on americans on u.s. soil. who is right on that one? >> i probably would disagree with rand paul on 99% of all things. i am very glad that he used the power of the filibuster to

case law on the second amendment. i sat down with cruz at cpac and he told m me aweapons are n common use and therefore they cannot be banned. >> and let's be clear. most people misunderstand the word assault weapon. it is not a machine gun or fully automatic weapon. it is essentially a deer rifle. a semi automatic weapon with cosmetic features that make it look scary and yet politicians in washington want to show how tough they are on crime so they want to ban some 4 million guns that law abiding americans have chose ton use to protect their home. >> shannon: what is the future of the gun measures as they wind their way through capitol hill? let's talk about it with chris stirewalt host of power play 11:30 a.m. every week week day. happy st. patrick's day. >> i can think of no better place to be on st. patrick's with a fair lass named shannon. >> we will do a little jig on the break. you have to pay for the extra content. >> only online. >> only onnine. >> shannon: actual votes that made it through the senate judiciary committee. what ton chance do they have ie actual senate? >> in i
and the so-called gun debate. we would have laws we need in this country within a month. so perhaps there will be a parent, b somebody in law enforcement. perhaps somebody will say, with the parents' permission, i think america must not look away. that's what we have been doing. we like to look away. >> here's what's going to happen. >> you know, our child isn't in iraq or afghanistan. we don't have to think about it. >> when you came on after aurora you were passionate. you said, i'm sick of this. yet within four months we had an even worse atrocity happen. only yesterday. >> yeah. >> we had this young student who was armed to the teeth in his room. he had an assault rifle, a handgun. he bought a thousand rounds of ammunition. ordered stuff on the internet that arrived that day. two 20-bullet magazines. let's look at what the police chief sheriff said about this discovery. >> i don't think that you acquire two 110-round magazines and numerous .22 capacity magazines and that you purchase a thousand rounds of ammunition and purchase the .45 ammunition. i don't think you do it as a jo
some in his party to defund president obama's health care law as part of a key government spending bill. >> our goal here is cut spending. it's not to shut down the government. i believe that trying to put obamacare on this vehicle risks shutting down the government. that's not what our goal is. our goal here is to reduce spending. bill: there is clearly disagreement on that front. assuming the senate passes the spending measure the house will have to take it up by the end of the march, march 27th, 12 days from now. that is the day the government's current budget authority will expire. six minutes past the hour. martha: market is on a tear lately, right? it reached another milestone in the bull market recording the 10th straight day of gains on thursday. that is the longist winning streak since november of 1996. very impressive in terms of new highs reached. let's bring in fox business network's charles payne with his thoughts on this. how significant is this run, charles? >> it is extraordinarily significant, in a sense to your point one for the record books so far. there are only coup
changed that. gay marriage, he changed that up in new york. they went ahead and changed the laws on the guns. in colorado, they did it. they changed the gun laws. and so at this point, if we can't get the federal government to do it i mean, you know with the gerrymandering, we are not going to get anything until 2014 when we might be able to get some of these people out of the government, out of the federal government. hopefully rally the democrats to come back to the poles and actually --ls and actually -- i don't know what we can do about that. so at this point, you know, until 2014, you know, we are not going to be able to get these people out of the government to change these laws. >> bill: you make a lot of since, julie anne. first of all, it's clear. we do need a federal statute because not all the 50 states are ever going to ban the sale of these weapons. as long as they can be bought and sold in one state, then they will filter out and be able to get out into every other state. it's just the way gun trafficking works. in the meantime, the ch
. >> there are not 205 communists in the state department or the harvard law school. >> stephanie: right. republican ted cruz the teeny tiny, little junior senator from texas. it really was unbelievable. dianne feinstein regardless of your politics -- i mean give me a break. this woman has been in the senate how long? and as she was pointing out she has literally put her finger in a bullet hole. >> yes. >> i remember that. i remember hearing about it on the radio -- >> were you in san francisco? >> no, but i could listen to kcbs from l.a. >> okay. >> stephanie: a lot of old timemy radio stories. i used to be on the big 50,000 watt power blaster back there. >> i remember when mr. marconey gave me a ride in his model t. >> when i lived in phoenix that's how i used to listen to you. >> you could hear koa denver from almost anywhere. >> stephanie: we had callers from iowa. >> really? that must be some skip. back to dianne feinstein. >> stephanie: right, what was i saying? [ laughter ] >> stephanie: i'm not sure if it's drinking or early on set, but whatever. i frequently don't know wh
is that he was party to the heller case. he is familiar with the law. i don't think he's using his senate seat uttering falsities about what the constitution says. he was making a case for the second amendment. i think what we're upset about is the tone and tenor he took with dianne feinstein, which is a fair point. >> jamaal, he's already on the winning side. this assault weapons ban will probably not get passed and people are wondering what his point is. >> yeah, his point, i think, as margaret was referring to, his point is to appeal to the tea party base. i sat with dianne feinstein. i heard her tell the story firsthand about being in the city hall as deficits go when the shootings that occurred that led to her taking the mayor's office. i think she does not need anybody like ted cruz telling her what to do. this issue around gun violence, i think we have to recognize it is different for people who come from rural areas versus people who come from urban areas. i saw first gun when i was in middle school, a kid who held it, you know, during a robbery. i think that people who live in ci
've said on a number of occasions, i don't really think that's the most important gun safety law we can pass. i think number one is background checks. number two, high-capacity magazines. and number three, and strengthening our trafficking laws. so i'm not as concerned about the fate of an assault weapons ban as i am the others. >> the american people as we all watch this, should we expect that if there is going to be anything comprehensive reform on gun violence in the country, it's going to be done by baby steps and not something broad and sweeping? >> i think so. you know, clearly, with background checks, polls show 90% of the american people are in favor of them. it's a number of about 75% in my own state. so i think there's certain things that are going to be easier to do than others. and probably a comprehensive ban. a comprehensive piece of legislation will probably contain poison pills that will keep any of them from being enact enacted. >> congressman john yarmuth, thanks for joining me from kentucky. that's going to wrap up things for me, i'll see you tomorrow. independent sen
. she may have the law on her side, but she's got the nra and ted cruz against her. >> there's two questions to explore here. one, i degree it's going to be hard get the votes for the bill in full. there are pieces of it that are still really important. for instance, included in the assault weapons ban, that passed the judiciary committee today is this ban on magazines that are over 10 bullets. frankly i think that would have a bigger effect on the mass tragedies than the overall bill would. i think we can preserve major pieces of the bill. even if we can't preserve the entirety of it. the second question is this, ted cruz doesn't have the politics on his side. because 90% of american citizens want full background checks bill passed. the vast majority want an assault weapons ban put into place. and the fact is, i think there's going to be real push-back at the polls in 2014, if republicans in this place and across the way and the house of representatives become the party of assault weapons, i think it's a bad place for them to be politically and it's certainly a bad place for them
the border. this is improvement. he talks about the plan involves a law that needs to be reauthorized every single year. >> correct. >> is that possible? >> it's all completely incoherent. it's based on the fact that republicans are trying -- they're trying desperately to find a way to be more appealing to a group of voters because they assume that other than immigration, hispanic voters would be for the republican party. they assume that latinos are more conservative than they really are. rand paul saying things like they're natural republicans. if we can get right on this issue, find a way to speak more softly on immigration without angering our hardline base, we'll be okay. i just don't think the premise is true. the economic issues also keep latino voters away from their party. >> absolutely. >> these ideas aren't necessarily helpful. >> and the issues of choice, actually, are one of the number one reasons why latinas, young women, actually overwhelmingly voted for the president. it's the tone -- they're tone deaf to the actual changing demographics of america. let's back up here. short
